  • Private Cremation: The most popular type of cremation for your loving pet today is "Private Cremation" where your pet is solely cremated by itself with no other pets present or cremated alongside your pet. That means your pet is exclusively identified with a steel identification disc throughout the process, and then placed inside the cremation chamber by themselves. Once completed, that same steel disc stays with your pet's cremated ashes. Then your pet's cremated ashes are collected, sealed, and prepared for their return back home to you.

  • Communal Cremation: Once only available as an option everywhere you go, even at your local city or state-governed facilities. This type of cremation can be performed with us as a more affordable option. This is where your pet is included with other pets without any type of separation. Your pet's cremated ashes are not returned to you, but are scattered into the ocean by our cremation company, which works with the Local Boy Scout Chapter A keepsake such as a Clay Paw Print Impression, or Hair Clipping and any of our other available options can be included with this procedure for an additional price.

In a world of uncertainty, even the best search engines won't always get you the best answers or information you are looking for. That's why the "Small Paws Team" will always answer your phone calls. We encourage everyone to give us a call and ask any questions they may have. During these tough times, give us your concerns so we can give you honest information from our experience and knowledge.

Growing up, I always knew that my passion, love and commitment, would be to dedicate myself to understanding cats and dogs. I’ve always considered myself an animal lover, and by the time I had my very first cat at a young age, my interest was sparked in learning to know all I could about cats and dogs. One thing I know to be a constant truth, is that there is no greater unconditional love and compassion that can mimic that of our precious animal family members. 

The pets that we share our home with are our best friends, companions, and for many of us, our children. They offer something that no human can provide, which is why my journey in life has always stayed focused on wanting to be around animals by caring for them in any way possible. 

My experience has mainly kept me in my hometown of Los Angeles, but I first began my animal care journey while living in Denver, Colorado. It was there that I first joined a wonderful team at a dog daycare, and was mentored well in understanding dog body language. I learned that dog behavior is displayed in various forms: from a play bow in joyful and happy dogs, to whale eyes in stressed and nervous dogs. Learning to understand these subtleties, helped me easily notice signs of sickness in dogs.

Due to my extensive experience working at dog daycares, boarding facilities, animal hospitals,  and doing dog walking/sitting, I’ve landed many roles as supervisor and manager. This has helped me expand my knowledge in animal behavior, which can only be understood by spending time with a group of 50 to 100 plus dogs. 

Over all, even with 20 years of experience, I still have a responsibility to do my best to never stop learning, and always bettering myself to gain modern knowledge about dogs and cats. Love has no limits, and compassion knows no bounds.
